Thank you Fusty Games & Midgar Studio for sending us this game to review!

After today's game I feel like I should be shouting "only Nineties kids remember" while trying to do some hardcore parkour. Hover: Revolt Of Gamers is a parkour challenge game in which you live in a society that outlaws entertainment. While they claim inspiration from Jet Set Radio, this adventure is original from top to bottom. Set your neon waves on high and run fast, gamers; this is Hover: Revolt Of Gamers.

In Hover, you're a clone that escapes from an experimental lab. The Gamer Rebellion rescues you and asks you to join them in taking down The Man. With every form of leisure and entertainment illegal, the only way to rebel is to have fun. Run quests, have races with others, and level up to get around the world and end anti-leisure tyranny.

So once you create your character and get out of the tutorial zone you can play the game how you want. You level up your rank by completing challenges, and every trick and mission you do earns your character experience points. Instead of stats, you have a grid that slowly unlocks as you level up. Items you earn can be placed in the grid and what you place will increase your abilities. Some missions will even unlock new clones you can make that have different stats from the base character. If you make new clones for your team you will start where you left off and you can level them without having to repeat missions. Starting a new team is where you can start a game from the beginning.

Strong Points: This game has a fun and inviting world with great visuals and music. The gameplay itself is perfectly crafted for this type of game. Nothing goes to waste.
Weak Points: The goofy story can become a bit annoying. The leveling system is boring and takes away from this lively and vibrant world.
Moral Warnings: Unless graffiti art bugs you, you won't have any moral worries with this game.

The game's missions are very well designed. While each mission has some similarities to others I never felt anything get repetitive. They build off your learned skills, making it harder and harder yet you're ready for the challenge when you get there. The world, combined with the music, has a hip feel that keeps you going. The lights are bright and the game makes you feel like you're in the future without forcing it down your throat. None of the missions overstay their welcome either. While you can't replay the same mission once you complete it to earn a better time, you'll still want to improve in the next mission.

The game's controls do deserve some special mention, you can control every single jump and movement you do. When you can control your movement in the air so precisely it gives a natural feel to the game. When you have that natural feel, you can easily get immersed in the game and feel like your flying through the air, if I had to compare this level of control to a game focused around running and hopping up and down buildings. I would call this a cross between Assassins Creed and Brink in terms of running.

The leveling system, while creative, is very boring. It's all stat upgrades mostly; even when you unlock the slot in your leveling grid that allows for a pet, all it does is float along side you and provide additional stat increases to your jumping or speed. The graffiti slot seems wasted when you want to change what you can spray paint on the walls. The leveling system is good when you want to create multiple characters for each team you create, and the leveling is quick and easy with how much there is to do in the world. However, a leveling system that only gives stats gives no life to your individual characters. The story is cute but it wears thin after awhile. The idea that you're some hip young rebels sticking it to The Man by having fun can be pretty corny. While I appreciate off the wall goofiness, it's a pretty boring story to pay attention to.

You'll have no moral problems with this game unless graffiti art really bothers you.

Hover: Revolt Of Gamers is a great goofy game that's worth your time. Even though the leveling system is boring and the story is really dumb, you can get lost for hours jumping from wall to wall. Show people how hardcore parkour is done in Hover: Revolt Of Gamers.

About Us:

Christ Centered Gamer looks at video games from two view points. We analyze games on a secular level which will break down a game based on its graphics, sound, stability and overall gaming experience. If you’re concerned about the family friendliness of a game, we have a separate moral score which looks at violence, language, sexual content, occult references and other ethical issues.
